We enjoyed our half day trip to Ayutthaya from Bangkok. We got the train which was good fun (although we had to stand on the way back as it was full) and took about an hour and a half. Once you're there it's easy to...More
I went to Ayutthaya with some local friends to see this piece of history.
Founded in the middle of the 1300's, it was the second capital after Sukhothai but the Burmese destroyed the place 500 years later.
What is left is the ruins of many...More
My wife and I had a wonderful private tour of Ayutthaya with Mr. Pok, a local guide showing people around the area and is fluent in English. we called Mr Pok one day in advance (at 0812539037) and he picked us up at our hotel...More
One of the great attractions is the buddah's head inside the tree's branch. Ok, it is original and curios, but we felt it didn't deserve such admiration.
The Mahathat temple surely was fantastic, but there is not much left. It is really sad. The Wat...More
Amazing to see the building skills the Thai already had many, many years ago. Unfortunately a Thai television hit, which was also popular in China, makes the place flooded with Chinese people. The fact that they are rude, impolite and respectless amkes me feel not...More
A wonderful place to spend a few days exploring the temples, riding a boat around the canals and rivers, visiting the many markets - and the Boat Museum. Do not ride the elephants - the training is unnecessarily cruel - don't support it.
We took the train here for the day from Bangkok. We just bought one way tickets each way, was really cheap. The train ride was about 2 hours each way. Get on the train early, if you can - the seats filled up quickly.

hi, Ayutthaya is about 80 kilometers north of Bangkok (approx 2 hrs drive). Ancient capital with extensive archaeological site eg. temple. Definitely worth the visit. Just bring umbrella with you and you will be fine.

I cannot answer you question (just bungalows) - f about travel from Lamplaimat. What I can say is that we traveled from Bangkok’s Lamphong Railway Station vía an express train to Ayutthaya. The cost was $15 one way. The train made four stops and arrived in 1 hour and 20 minutes. The carriage was air conditioned. A meal and water were provided. We departed 10:15 and caught the last train out at 18:00 same day.
We visited Ayutthaya during a weekday. So I can’t say whether the sites are busier on weekends. What I can say is that I have seen an appreciable difference in traffic due to weekends anywhere in SE Asia. What is important to understand is that the town of Ayutthaya grew around the historical sites. Traffic is everywhere. We bicycled around to all the sites. Fun if not a little scary at times. I recommend searching the web for self directed tours to Ayutthaya. Good luck and enjoy. Ayutthaya is worth a see!
